57 ford wagon police

Recommended Posts

Found a vintage picture from a local PD that inspired this build. Pretty much straight out of the box. I added the door shields & changed the wheel covers from the kit pieces.

Nicely done. I had to chuckle about the Radar Patrol decal on the 1:1.

Great looking '57. Nice engine detailing and chrome trim on the body.  What Hub Caps did you use ?

I agree. The radar back then was probably the size of a refrigerator! I’d love to get the decal printed to match the photo though!

I believe they came from a thunderbolt? Not totally sure

That''s why that Radar Patrol car could only be a station wagon, the units had to be bolted down some place! Great model though - really like it!
